Steven Spielberg must have been a secret visitor to Bohol once, his character Yoda in Star Wars is undoubtedly has the same physical features as the tarsier.
One of the few islands in Southeast Asia where this cute furry animal call it home, Bohol has been on the forefront in the preservation of this endangered species and has lately been successful in reversing the extinction trend.
These nocturnal creatures are tamed when grown in captivity. They can be seen clinging on bushes with those staring big round eyes wide open but seem to be blinded by the brightness of the day. My kids are over-excited in getting a real feel and touch of this very intriguing animal. They made sure to have in record in camera the encounter as any Bohol visitor would want to.
My four children consider their first encounter with a real and breathing tarsier as the most memorable and most exciting moment in our 11-day Visayan tour. The pictures confirm so.
Address: Loboc River Souvenir Shop.
Directions: On the river dock of the floating restaurants, one souvenir shop has this DENR-approved tarsiers in captivity. Numbering about a dozen.
